Popcorn

 2024 POPCORN FUNDRAISER!

The Popcorn Sale is the official sponsored fundraiser of the Georgia-Carolina council. Popcorn isn't just about raising money, it's about teaching Scouts the value of earning money, interacting with adults, and being more confident. 

There are 3 ways to sell, please watch the videos below for a concise overview of each option:

  1. Online/Trails End App (personalized page to text/email/share on socials)
  2. Storefront Sales (Show & Sell)
  3. Wagon Sales (Take Order)

Please register for a Trails End Webinar today for additional ways on how to make your popcorn fundraiser a success!

Here are YouTube videos of Zoom training Trails-End put on for our Council in 2022, covering in depth how to use the Trails-End app for storefront, wagon and online sales. 

We have a facebook group now for leaders, this includes popcorn kernels and other pack leaders that will be helping with the popcorn sales. https://www.facebook.com/groups/gacapopcorn The security questions are only there to make it so bots can't easily join. We ask that you don't have your scouts or parents join this group as it is for information and logistics between leaders only. Please use your unit facebook group, email and other unit communications to get the information to them.
